Complete schedule for India’s tour of New Zealand 2020
Team India are brimming with confidence at the moment. Ever since their semi-final defeat at the hands of New Zealand in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in England, they haven’t lost a single series across formats. They defeated West Indies in West Indies and then they won against South Africa, Bangladesh, West Indies, Sri Lanka and Australia at home.
With full of zest and zeal, India will tour New Zealand to play five-match T20I series, three-match ODI series and two-match Test series. Ahead of the Test series, both teams will play a three-day practice match. There is no doubt that New Zealand are a tough team to beat at their own backyard and India will give absolutely everything to turn the tables around.
India’s record in New Zealand has been pathetic and Virat Kohli-led team will be looking forward to an exciting challenge.
In 2019, Kohli & Co. got the better of the hosts 4-1 in the One-Day Internationals. However, the Black Caps bounced back in the T20I series and beat the Men in Blue 2-1.
The tour kicks off with T20I series and the first match will be played at Eden Park, Auckland on January 24.
